I love mandolin cases almost as much as I do mandolins! I think all musicians enjoy carrying their instrument in a nice case. I wanted a traditional style case, one like the Gibson Lloyd Loar mandolins came with but covered in cowhide leather. There was only one problem, I couldn’t find anyone that would build one. Eventually I decided to build it myself. With a lot of advice from my friend Steve Kirtley, one of the world’s leading case experts, I attempted it. It took me a few months working on and off but I finished it! Made from hardwood and the finest leather available I was excited about my new case! Immediately I started receiving requests from several people asking if I would build them one as well. So I started building!
My cases are made of hardwood, covered in fine leather and are built to last a lifetime! Although the exterior is built to traditional case specs I use a more modern approach on the inside with padding covered in beautiful velvet for maximum protection.
I offer cases in brown or black leather but can do custom one of a kind cases in different exterior colors. Available velvet colors are purple, red, pink, black and green moss.
Cases start at $1,200 plus tax and shipping
